Dealing With Exhaustion - My Tips


Dealing With Exhaustion
“Relax, Recharge and Reflect. Sometimes it’s OK to do nothing.” 
― Izey Victoria Odiase


How many of us are guilty of over exerting ourselves?
 I know I am. I take on more then I can handle, because I hate saying no.
 Slowing down isn't an option, as I get the overwhelming urge that things may get on top of me, and I rarely ask for help, because the perfectionist in me won't allow it.
At times I am my own worst enemy.

But since when has slowing down, and taking a step back mean defeat?

In this twenty four hour digital world that we live in, my brain is constantly ticking over, and just recently I've had to admit to myself that I am exhausted and it's nothing to be ashamed of.
I made a vow with myself right there and then that before this became a major problem I would take some me time.
So as more of a reminder to myself than anything else here are my tips for preventing, and dealing with exhaustion, with the hopes that it may help someone else.

Eat yourself well

Its so easy to forget to eat well when you are to busy with everything else. Snacking on sweets and eating junk food is the equivalent of putting petrol in a diesel car. You wouldnt do this to your vehicle, but yet we happily do it to our bodies. Try to make sure you eat well balanced foods, and I promise you now, your energy levels will soar. Its amazing what a bit of healthy eating can do.

Switch Off 

Whether it’s to simply take a breather from the computer screen or get outside into the fresh air. Wherever you can, step back and switch off. I use to be terrible for immediately reaching for my phone as soon as I woke up, but now I try to just lay there and think about the day ahead of me.
 Taking this time to get my day in order has made me feel so much more productive in the mornings, instead of preoccupying my brain with the newest blogger twitter beef!

 Know When To Stop 

Its so easy to be sat working till ungodly hours, or tweeting at unsociable hours. But knowing when to stop, and actually stopping has made the biggest impact on my energy levels. Instead of completely burning myself out, having a complete recharge has made such a refresh on my brain.

 Relax & Pamper 


I use to feel so guilty about simply reading a afternoon away. Sitting down with my favorite mug and comfiest PJ's with a good book, always left me feeling like I was doing something wrong. In my mind, there was always something else I could be getting on with. The reality is, none of these so called things that needed doing were going anywhere. 
They can wait.
Indulging in you, is one of the best things you can do for yourself, you just have to let that guilt go.

  1. This is a great post! I found that all through last year I was exhausted from school work but I refused to take any help with my A-levels which in turn meant I would sleep from the moment I got home from school until I had to work or go back the next day. It left no time for me to look after myself. This is so relatable x

  2. Such good advice in this post - especially about switching off. I think it's good to go relax and just enjoy your surroundings now and then, and worry about social media and computers and phones afterwards! Really makes a difference sitting outside and not being on your phone.

    Hope you have had a great weekend! :)
